Life Lately: A Festive Weekend.
Last weekend Jordan and I wrapped up warm (two tops, a jumper, a cardigan, a scarf and a coat) and headed to the newly opened Christmas Market here in Glasgow. We’ve been waiting all year for that delicious bratwurst and warm strawberry cider, but did we manage to get hold of some? Stay tuned for more information…
My photographer was on hand to take my outfit snaps, I wore an H&M skirt and jumper and my Missguided cardigan over the top. I’m also wearing an H&M coat and scarf and a pair of Glamorous boots. The necklace is one I’ve had for ages, I’m sure you can find something similar though, if you fancy the full ghostparties experience.
The market was rammed as it was a Sunday and the first weekend of opening, but I can confirm that we managed to grab ourselves a spicy bratwurst and a cup of warm cider – I love this stuff, it’s the best way to warm up! We had a little browse around the market, it seems even better than last year – just look at all that delicious food. I wanted to dive head first in to that pile of sweets and chomp my way out, but I manage to resist. Next time I may not be so strong.
We were going to finish off with some churros but… there was a queue and it’s a little known fact that I’m allergic to queuing so we passed up on the churros this time, though I did hear one squeak my name as I walked by.
We said farewell to the market and headed for a tea and a coffee to warm us up. We went to Eat because it’s usually quiet and you can people-watch from the upstairs seating, everyones dream date, am I right? Jordan promised me cake and I settled on this beautiful red velvet… thing. Cake, I guess it is. Jo had a slice of caramel shortcake which was amazing dunked in to my tea (yep, I’m a food thief). Jordan actually took a very enlightening series of snaps in which I took out the teabag from my cup, whilst making a face that can only be described as a Mr Bean impression – sadly, it didn’t make the cut.
The cakes were incredible, the tea was met by rapturous applause and my date was pretty scrumptious too. Just before we left I was overcome by an unexpected sneeze which sounded a lot like an airplane taking off. We left hastily.
I think at this point we went and raided Zara before another tea pit-stop back at our flat – a cup and saucer for Mouse too of course.
Are you a fan of the Christmas market? Would Jordan and I be your dream coffee dates?
